Marko Stamenkovic

University of Ghent

Marko Stamenkovic is a curator and art historian born and raised in Serbia. Since 2011 he has been based in Belgium as a PhD Researcher at the University of Ghent (Center for Ethics and Value Inquiry, Department of Philosophy and Moral Sciences). He is a member of IKT – the International Association of Curators of Contemporary Art.

His curatorial activities date back to 2001 with his first professional internship – at Artists Space in New York City – in the period coinciding with events of 9/11 (September – October 2001). This fact made a long lasting impact on his career, as well as on his personal and professional views on relationships among iconic images, global vision and ritual sacrifice. His doctoral project is titled: "Suicide Cultures. Theories and Practices of Radical Withdrawal – A Transnational Cultural and Media Paradigm (2001–2011)", and puts into focus the changing nature, dramatic actuality and expanded, bio-ethical and visual meaning of suicidal phenomena as symptoms of global media culture in the first decade of the 21st century. For more information about his previous projects, including exhibitions curated in Serbia and abroad please visit his website.
